Happiness: We all want more of it. But many of us pursue it badly. The good news is that scientists have determined the core factors that make us happy. The bad news is that most of them are out of our control. That means we have to make the most of our life decisions.  Which of our life decisions matter most? How important are money and success? How do we maximize happiness for everyone? And why are lottery winners such a miserable lot? Research suggests surprising answers to these questions.  AEI president, economist, and New York Times-best-selling author Arthur Brooks has spent much of his career studying the science of happiness. In this talk, Brooks will outline the right – and wrong – pillars of our pursuit and explain a compelling link between public policy and personal happiness.
